Silly Sunday…

Noah's ark

lessons learned from Noah’s Ark:

ONE: Don’t miss the boat.

TWO: Remember that we are all in the same boat.

THREE: Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark.

FOUR: Stay fit. When you’re 60 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.

FIVE: Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.

SIX: Build your future on high ground.

SEVEN: For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.

EIGHT: Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.

NINE: When you’re stressed, float awhile.

TEN: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.

ELEVEN: No matter! the storm, when you are with God, there’s always a rainbow waiting

( I got this from my friend astrosprincess in an e-mail and thought it was cute so I thought I would share)

Have a blessed Sunday ya’ll !!!

Spring flowers and April showers

It has been so beautiful around here lately with everything that is in full bloom thanks to our very early Spring. My husband (IMHO) is very talented when it comes to taking pictures. He just has the eye for it and for that I am thankful. It really comes in handy when I need pictures for my blog or scrapbook layouts I mean I can point a camera and shoot like a group shot or of a person but he sees things through that lens in such cool ways.So I wanted to take today to show off his talent and bring a little Spring sunshine to everyone’s day. It is raining here today, we are expecting a storm anytime now. We need the rain badly but I could do without the storm…lol
Anyway, enjoy some of my favorite pictures of our flowers in bloom and have a great Saturday.

red paperclips,a concert and Alice Cooper

This has got to be the most genius idea I have come across in awhile. This guy Simon, is starting with two red paperclips ,and is going to attempt to keep trading them up until he gets a house for them eventually. I think that is the coolest idea I have heard in a very long time, don’t you think? Now I will start by saying his idea is not an original one ,but he does not take credit for it being either. He has a link to the original one on his blog and I will have it for you later on in this post. There are two reasons I am posting about this. One ,of course, because I think it is a very cool idea and want to try and help him out by giving him exposure ,and two he is my tenant this week. After clicking his blog and reading about it I HAD to have him stay here this week. I am going to blogroll him , and keep up with his journey. So far, after only three days of the start of his adventure ,he got a trade proposition of concert tickets…Well not tickets but access for two to a concert. It sounds like a cool start to me….I wish him all the best. Please take a moment of your time if you can and go over and check out his page. It is very new and a standard template right now. He is also looking for help with that as well if any of you are willing to either give him some tips or help him out by creating him a cool template, I am sure he would be forever grateful.

I was checking out Kyle’s page, he is the original guy that thought of this thing I think ( as far as I can tell anyway) He has traded up quite a bit from one paperclip. Right now he is at a day to hang out with Alice Cooper. Wouldn’t that be awesome? Alice Cooper is a heavy metal rockstar turned Christian…I would love to have a long talk with him about his testimony.. It would be very cool. I have heard that he even does alter calls after his concerts.. God is just cool isn’t he… Alice Cooper is helping someone get a years free rent in her duplex for this project… I think that is just awesome.The original guy has pictures and even some video of his trades on his site…If you would like to check him out just click here Here is an article in which Alice talks about his faith in Christ.

Have a great weekend all!!!!

Today’s Miracle

I know God is with us every second of everyday. I know that God is awesome and I recognize that in little things daily. Sometimes though I get busy or thinking about other things and forget to stop and realize just how majestic and powerful He really, really is. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying I forget or am unaware…I am saying that some things make you stop and reflect this fact a little more then others.. Like the Holy spirit is like ” Look,look what he has done…our God is truely an awesome God.”I woke up to this on the news this morning and felt so bad for this guy.He had collided with and eighteen wheeler and his whole car was trapped under the bed of the truck.You can see that here. When I turned the channel they were bringing in that crane to lift the car so they could get the guy out. I was thinking to myself, oh my gosh there is no way anyone is alive under there. That is terrible , what a way to die.

Well, Gup came home to have lunch with me and told me that they pulled that guy out and he was awake,alert and talking to the people ,and that he had been life flighted to the hospital. I thought you know what. God is awesome. He is doing things in the spiritual relm that are so wayyyyy beyond our human understanding. So many times things look totally impossible to us humans but nothing is impossible with God. I am so happy this guy lived through this. I pray he recovers and heals quickly , but most of all that he sees the Glory of God through this.I know I did….

Here is him being rescued ( it’s not bloody or nasty). So today and everyday I say Praise God!!! …He is awesome. Please join me in praying for this man’s recovery and most of all his relationship with God. I pray that where ever he is in that relatonship that is strengthened through this.

Farts, nipples, and Chocolate Oh My!!!

I LOST 20 lbs with my surgery…YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHH (that makes a total of 38 lbs. so far) I am so excited I could fart … Oh wait that is because of the gas from the Man surgery makes you fart a lot And has anyone else had the problem of nipples staying hard all the time after surger? I am always having THO now and it was not that big a problem before… Just wondering if anyone else noticed that little surgery side effect?

Anyway, that was not what I wanted your attention for,it was for my renter.. Wannabe TV Chef is my tenant this week and he is having problems with his thumbnail so it doesn’t even look like I am renting to anyone. He posts the most yummy looking recipes… I am such a sucker for good recipes too .. that is why I had to choose him this week. He had me at this one the first time I seen it. MMMMMMMMMM
